Key points

Strategic & tactical allocations

Thrivent Asset Management (TAM) conducts extensive quantitative research to build long-term strategic models calibrated for multiple risk levels. Senior leadership meets regularly to discuss and determine tactical allocations based on current and expected market conditions as well as macroeconomic factors, technical indicators and fundamental data.

Style-pure security selection

TAM uses a sophisticated manager selection process intended to identify style-pure managers with consistent risk-adjusted performance that we feel are most likely to outperform over a full market cycle. This proprietary process helps to ensure that the portfolios will consistently provide desired market exposures that align with TAM’s overall market views.

Mix of active & passive

While TAM believes in active management, we recognize the benefits of passive exposure and follow a hybrid approach which uses both management styles. Passive holdings help keep expenses low, provide tactical exposures to specific asset classes, help facilitate trades within the models and may act as a hedge to active holdings.


How does TAM manage and allocate the model portfolios?

The quantitative analytics team builds diversified models based on long-term strategic target allocations.

Ongoing changes to tactical allocations are made based on current market conditions and outlook.

Manager selection focuses on style-pure, consistent performers.
